The Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Transgender Community in Ireland – Responding to suicide.
Suicide Information & Reports
Suicide rates (per 100,000), by gender, Ireland, 1950-2007.
There is no single intervention or approach that will, in itself, adequately challenge the problem of suicide in Ireland. A strategic framework is required to assist all of us in identifying actions we can undertake in a coordinated way, through partnership working between statutory, voluntary and community groups and individuals, supported by Government. Everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention – from the health sector to our schools, community groups and those in private enterprise.
The main subjects of HRB in-house research are alcohol and drug use, child health, disability and mental health. The research that we do provides evidence for changes in the approach to service delivery. It also identifies additional resources required to support people who need services for problem alcohol and drug use, mental health conditions and intellectual, physical and sensory disabilities.
This evidence briefing is a review of reviews of the evidence of effectiveness for the prevention of youth suicide.
The need for a more humane, person focused service was the consistent message from the many people Mental Health Reform spoke to during the wide consultations that informed this Manifesto. This message holds the essence of what needs to happen to reform mental health in Ireland.

Suicide Rates 2002 – 2005

A survey on attitudes to suicide in Ireland, commissioned by the Irish Association of Suicidology, was formally launched by Mr Tim O’Malley, Minister for Disability and Mental Health, on 1 November 2006. The Association was founded in 1996 three years after the decriminalisation of suicide. At that time suicide was very much a taboo subject. 2006 seemed an opportune time to have some measure of public attitudes to suicide.
